Help re­unite us with hol­i­day mem­o­ries

North Wales Weekly News - - NEWS - BY MARI JONES

AN Aus­tralian cou­ple who lost the pre­cious photos from their Welsh “hol­i­day of a life­time” are ap­peal­ing to the peo­ple of North Wales to re­unite them with the im­ages.

Bev­er­ley Cz­er­ni­awski and her hus­band Mitch were dev­as­tated to lose their Pana­sonic Lu­mix Dig­i­tal cam­era on Wed­nes­day, July 1. The cam­era was lost on ei­ther Mostyn Street, Madoc Street or Vaughan Street in Llan­dudno.

It con­tained hun­dreds of im­ages from their month-long trip to Wales.

The cou­ple, who have been mar­ried for 35 years, have now re­turned to their home in Mel­bourne, but con­tacted the Daily Post in a last-ditch at­tempt to get their cam­era or at least their mem­ory stick back.

Bev­er­ley said: “I don’t re­ally care that much about the cam­era, but the mem­ory stick had four weeks of photos on it, which I would dearly love to get back.

“I’m of­fer­ing 100 Aus­tralian dol­lars to any­one who can help.

“My hus­band and I loved Wales. We had al­ways wanted to visit as I love hear­ing the Welsh ac­cent and have heard a few Welsh choirs.

“It is such a lovely coun­try and the weather was su­perb, so the photos are spe­cial.

“We thought North Wales was beau­ti­ful, es­pe­cially Snow­do­nia.

“Other favourites were Conwy, LLan­gollen, Llan­dudno and the Bre­con Bea­cons.

“We were pre­pared for the rain but we had hardly any at all, so that was a real bonus.”

While in Llan­dudno, Bev­er­ley checked to see if the cam­era had been handed in at the po­lice sta­tion or the tourist in­for­ma­tion cen­tre, but to no avail.

She said: “I love mak­ing photo al­bums and was so look­ing for­ward to mak­ing my ‘Wales’ al­bum. I was dev­as­tated when I found my cam­era was lost.

“I re­traced my steps the day fol­low­ing the loss, as I had ab­so­lutely no idea how or where in par­tic­u­lar I had lost it.

“I had so many pic­tures of won­der­ful build­ings that had stood for hun­dreds of years, quaint streets, proud cas­tles and pic­turesque coun­try­side.

“If some­body could re­turn it, I’d be so happy.” ■
